NCIS: Season 13 – CBS knows there is no replacing Michael Weatherly

CBS knows there is no replacing Michael Weatherly, so don’t go looking for a new character to fill Tony DiNozzo’s very big shoes on NCIS, the network’s chief told reporters Tuesday.

“The producers are working on a couple of roles right now,” said CBS Entertainment President Glenn Geller. “It’s not a direct replacement of Tony DiNozzo, but we are looking at a couple additions [for] this season.”

The network recently confirmed reports that Weatherly will leave the procedural at season’s end. The actor’s departure had been in the works for more than a year; Weatherly even sat down with CBS Corp. Chairman Leslie Moonves about exiting the show that made him a household name.
